Serie KU’DAMM 56

Ku’Damm 56 ist eine fantastische deutsche Serie, welche, wie der Serientitel schon sagt, in den 50er Jahren spielt. Ein Fest für die Augen – nicht nur die Kostüme, sondern die gesamte Ausstattung ist mehr als gelungen. Besonders mitreißend ist die zeitgemäße und detaillierte Darstellung diverser Figuren und die Entwicklung, welche sie in den 3 Folgen durchmachen. Sehenswert!

“Die Mischung aus verklemmter Spießigkeit, schwer auszuhaltender Biederkeit, sanfter Rebellion und zaghaften Schritten hin zur Emanzipation in den 50er Jahren ist gelungen und dürfte gerne – beispielsweise als Serie wie die US-Produktion „Vinyl“ – fortgesetzt werden.

Erste Staffel mit 3 Folgen je ca. 90 Minuten

CALIFORNICATION #epicfail

Biggest mistake Director ever made or What’s wrong with Hank Moody’s sperm?

So finally I saw CALIFORNICATION and you can say whatever you want about the Series – good or bad – there is one thing that keeps me thinking: How is this genetically possible? Hank and Karen are more than beautiful. Becca their child – hmm – let’s say that’s not what you are expecting if a child has parents which look like models.

HOT AND NEW SERIES 2015

My favorite TV SHOW discoveries 2015

unbelievable funny story – amazing actors!

THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (2015-) second season on TV
Almost two years after a virus wiped out most of the human race, Phil Miller only wishes for some company. I am not sure if I want be in his company. Phil is really annoying grumpy and egoistic. Although I love his I-don’t-give-a-fuck-attitude and his shy conversations with the mannequin.

MASTER OF NONE (2015-) second season confirmed
Why is it so interesting although nothing is happening? Because it’s like real life. There is not always a joke at the end of a conversation. Very interesting are the last episodes of the first season when the big question is coming up if Dev should stay together with his girlfriend. “I may have to steal that for a breakup move.”

HANNIBAL AND MIKE <3

I just finished watching Hannibal season 3 and I am blown away by the most beautiful and touching BROMANCE I have ever seen on screen. Spoileralarm: At the end of season 3 when they fell into each others arms I wished for a second they gonna kiss and fall of the cliff into endless LOVE. Btw I think they did anyways.

Every relationship has his arguments. Ignoring calls was yesterday. Hannibal made an unusual step when he revealed his broken heart to Mike in an artistic way I haven’t seen before. This man knows how to set clear statements.

Most striking element of the series is definitely the sounddesign. I couldn’t watch the first episodes of season 1 at night time. I was scared to hell. Noting that I watched the series alone. Mads Mikkelsen did a fantastic job. At the beginning he is obvious the evil and antihero. Over the seasons I felt like a victim of Hannibals charm and diagnosed myself the Stockholm-Syndrom. I am so not judging Dr. Bedelia Du Maurir and her little love escape with Lecter to Italy. He is an interesting character – a master of manipulation and controlling not only every situation also people. Besides he is a brilliant cook and what should I say I love to eat meat. Am I mentally sick? Yes, I should make an appointment with a psychiatrist. Wait a second! That’s also Hannibal. There is no escape. Dammit. I am kind of shocked we only get three seasons. Is this a bad joke?

Like always when I watched the last episode of a series I have the feeling I lost a good friend. In Hannibals case it will take even longer to get over him. By now he became not only a good friend he is more like a lover. He got under one’s skin. It will take time to cut him out.
